Each year between 30 & 40 students enter the Oliphant Science Competition. It is fantastic to see our young creative minds taking on scientific challenges. The Oliphant Science Awards have been conducted every year by SASTA since 1981. Para Vista has been involved for over 10 years.

The Oliphant Science Awards aim to stimulate and enable students to undertake and report on scientific investigations in a real life setting.
